Chamber Music Evening

Chamber Music Evening

It was certainly a case of ‘If Music be the food of love, play on’ for Valentines’ Day as Thursday night saw a fabulous evening of Chamber music. The eclectic mix that made up this programme really demonstrated the wealth and depth of some of the Chamber Music that happens here. From the lively Cremona Strings to the Piano Trio playing a sublime and deeply moving movement of a Shostakovich Piano Trio, the Year 9 String Quartet with Mendelssohn, and another foursome, this time with an offering from Mozart’s Oboe Quartet. A String Quintet with Peter Martin’s rhythmic ‘Intrada’, the Flute Ensemble with an arrangement of the ubiquitous ‘Marriage of Figaro’ and a wind nonet playing Howard Blake, yes, he of The Snowman fame, performing the first movement from his Serenade for Winds. The Wind Quintet brought the evening to a close with two movements from Mozart’s’ ‘Gran Partita’. Quite a feat to have now performed every movement from this work. Well done all – a really impressive evening, and only a month until you are all in action again at the Choral Concert………
